Jackboy’s Dog Bakery is a bakery of all natural, olive oil baked human-grade
gourmet dog treats. Our company is founded on the principle of creating
memorable experience for dog owners with their dogs by baking up fresh and
healthy treats that dogs desire while parents feel the satisfaction of spoiling
their dogs with healthy treats safe from chemical preservatives, artificial color
dyes, artificial flavor and additives in commercially mass-produced dog treats.
From the ingredients we put into our treats to the way we bake, craft and run
our bakery, quality is number one with no short cuts.
Jackboy's Dog Bakery was founded out of a lot of love but mainly a lot of fear
for Jackboy and his doggie friends. Back in early 2007, we had a major pet food
crisis when many dogs and cats died from eating poisonous pet food containing
tainted wheat gluten from China. These pet owners lost their furry companions
while many others spent hundreds of dollars in vet bills trying desperately to get
them back to health. A few weeks later, there was another pet food scare when
a major pet food brand manufacturer recalled one of their product line due to
the suspicion of poisoned ingredient. At that point, Jackboy and I started to look
into exactly how healthy the food we are getting from these commercial
manufacturers. I am Jackboy’s mom and my name is Athena Yap. I cannot even
pronounce some of the chemicals in the pet food I’m feeding Jackboy! That is
when Jackboy and I decided to start making our own snacks and treats out of
all natural ingredients. No added preservatives, no artificial colorings and no
artificial flavors. We do not even use commercially produced beef or chicken
bouillon. When we say all natural, we are committed to keep it all natural.
The results………Jackboy loves the fresh baked goodies and I got a lot of
satisfaction from the whole process of creating the cute cookies in different
shapes and baking them all from scratch for my Jackboy. I’ve never seen his
nostrils flared up like what I’ve seen when I gave him the very first fresh baked
cookie. Oh the joy of seeing my dog loving what I’ve baked for him! Most
importantly, I now know that Jackboy is eating safe, healthy and wholesome food
…… at least snacks and treats. Jackboy and I like to share these precious gifts
with every dog and owner out there. Jackboy has employed me, paying me with
lots of doggie love and slobber, to run the show.
Sincerely, Jack and Athena Yap
